    The six foot tall man that stands before you looks like a soldier from any army. His Armor and Weapon seem nothing more than hand-me-down army gear on first look. When you actually get a good look at his equipment you notice an ensign that you do not recognize. Whatever unit he was a part of must have been small maybe rogue but you don’t you know. The picture of a lone white wolf more abstract than realistic appears on his chest and shoulder. He is slender and looks quite agile for a human. His strong eyes and stern demeanor seem to contradict his otherwise jovial behavior. His brown hair is short almost buzzed, and his gray eyes seem to be taking everything in all at once. His cloak and boots are a dark-green, while his leather armor and even his bow are dark black.

    Joining the military at age 18 he trained to be a swordsman, but his abilities lied in other areas. Actually he couldn’t hit even the easiest of targets. It was on the Archery range that he excelled he seemed to be able to see farther and better than his fellow soldiers. So he was drafted into the scout core. He was trained as a scout for the next 2 years until he was ready. He went on many short recon missions very rarely entering combat. If anything he was asked to snipe targets, he was good at shooting on the run. He found that the standard equipment that he was given, the bow and the armor, seemed to be under-protective and under-effective in combat, so he had them reworked as he got enough funds to do so, against standard military orders. So as the missions went by he was better than he thought. Then during a mission when he was 21, something went wrong. He was caught by an enemy team, after a month of questioning and torture he was let go. His scars have never healed, not that anyone could ever see them but him. There is a scar that runs from the center of his chest to the bottom right corner of his stomach, in a c type pattern. Since his release he was taken back into the army’s folds but on more of a consolation basis until he could get over his fright of getting caught. He has been working for another captain since his return and he now, usually he runs recon missions about once a month, works as a mercenary for the city locals. (For working for the city he usually just takes housing and a few gold nothing more. They have since given him a small house on the out skirts of town, 2 rooms small. He does these favors to help the guard captain keep the monsters at bay, both human and animal alike.) He has worked with and teamed with many individuals over the years and usually can be found at the lake fishing during the day and the bar at night when he is not training. He usually sets up a bell about 300 yards from his fishing spot to signal their approach (DC 20 spot) but at the bar he is friendly but quick to defuse any trouble that may start brewing generally by buying a song and a drink (and maybe a few ladies if it will help the situation).

    He now works as a specialized scout leader for the military, but as such he is the first one to shot and hide. Due to his imprisonment he won’t leave a man in the field but he knows his talents lie in stealth and silence. So if he runs he is just looking for a good place to counterattack from. Because you don’t leave a man behind, you get him back at all costs.

    He is lawful in the effect that he will follow orders only if they do not contradict his strict moral code. Everyone deserves a chance at freedom, when you have had your freedoms revoked you try to give them to others. He also expects others to follow his orders especially as far as tactics are concerned. He doesn’t do anything to harm anyone unless they have shown hostility toward him. On the first hint of aggression he reacts with a swiftness that can not be matched.

    Notes: Jack with go for some kind of non-elven Archer prestige class Order of the Bow Initiate (CW). Maybe just a scout with woodland archer.

    It was not the most peaceful life, that Leonara lived. The wood elf was born into a small elven community living near the old Elven Court in Cormanthor, the former home of the elves on Faerûn. Most of her kin had long forsaken their ancient home during the Elven Retreat and travelled to other places, like Evermeet or Evereska, and only few remained. The peace inside the impressive forest was often disturbed. With most of the elven defenses broken or disabled, it fell to the last elven inhabitants of Cormanthor to fend for themselves. The drow had begun to secure a foothold from where they were raiding the weaker communities, they did not yet dare to come close to the old Elven Court, but that was just a matter of time. Orc and gnoll bands were roaming freely beneath the giant maple trees. But the former Elven Court was still the most secure place to be.
    Leonara has been trained in the ways of the forest, the language of the animals, and in the fine art of elven warcraft, swordplay and archery. The ranger also had learned about the strengths and weaknesses of the living dead, which were often found near the ruins of Myth Drannor, where countless adventurers and treasure hunters had perished in the past. She sometimes accompanied raiding parties, that set out for the ancient ruins, fending off the undead, to drive them back before they would become a problem. Whenever the Elven Court itself was in danger, she was also there to defend its borders against humanoid raiders with her bow. But all that lies the past now.
    A few years ago, Leonara left Cormanthor together with an elven warband, to venture out into the lands of man. The elves would not be able to stand against the constant attacks alone, and the human lands were also plagued by war as it was known. It was the decision of the leaders of their community, that they would go and aid the humans in their struggle in the hope, that they would come to the defense of Cormanthor in turn. So they set out, equipped with the finest arms and armors the elves had to spare. At Leonara's side was the elven hound Stalker, an impressive canine with a natural bond to the elven race and a distrust in all others. Only an elf could rear and train the cooshee, as they are called in the elven tongue. Stalker was Leonara's companion for some years already, found and trained as a pup, the long-lived hound accompanied the elf on hunt and raid alike since he was old enough.
    The elves travelled to the south-west, to Cormyr, where they fought against orcish and goblinoid war parties. In one of those battles Leonara was seperated from her companions together with a few human militiamen. She found out later after the attackers were defeated, that her troupe had been routed. Most of them were likely dead. A search revealed only few survivors, but most of the other elves remained missing. Many of the human survivors were headed back to the city of Eveningstar, where they would recover and lend their strength to the local authorities. Leonara accompanied them, it was as good a place as any other this far from her home, and the prospect of seeing the tressym, the winged cats common to that area the other soldiers had told her of, filled her elven heart with joy.

    Elf Ranger, Elvencraft Bow and Hunter's Mercy:

    Hit Die: d6 (used for substitution levels only)
    Skill Points: 8+Int (Balance as additional class skill for substitution levels only)

    1st Elf Favored Enemy replaces Favored Enemy
    4th Elven Hound Companion

    Elf Favored Enemy (Ex): An elf ranger's favored enemy ability grants him a +2 bonus to Hide, Listen, Move Silently, Spot, and Survival checks used against creatures of the chosen type, and a +2 bonus on weapon damage rolls against such creatures. If the elf ranger chooses humanoid (orc), undead or "servants of Lolth" as his favored enemy, these bonuses rise to +3. "Servants of Lolth" includes drow, monstrous spiders of all sizes, and driders; this is an addition to the normal list of options for a ranger's favored enemy found on page 47 of the Player's Handbook.
    This substitution feature replaces the standard ranger's 1st-level favore enemy class feature.
    This substitution feature also affects the elf ranger's later improvements to his favored enemy ability. Each time an elf ranger gains a new favored enemy, he can increase the bonus for one favored enemy by 2, or 3 if he chooses to increase his bonus against orcs, undead or servants of Lolth.

    Elven Hound Companion (Ex): A 4th-level elf ranger can select an elven hound (see page 189) as his animal companion, even though the creature is a magical beast. For the purpose of any of the ranger's spells that affect animals, as well as his use of Handle Animal or wild empathy on the companion, the elven hound is treated as an animal.

    This odd-looking dog seems almost as big as a pony. It has a thick, greenish coat with large brown spots. It has exceedingly large feet with very long claws for a dog.

    The elven hound (called the cooshee in Elven) is a massive dog. It is most commonly found in the company of wood elves, who use it for both hunting and guard duties. Occasionally, high elves or gray elves will keep kennels of these dogs.
    An elven hound weighs more than 200 pounds and often stands as much as 2 feet high at the shoulders. Its huge paws house strong claws, which are curved to provide better traction in the soft loam of the forest lands. Its tail generally arcs over its back, but it hangs between the creature's legs when the hound is being scolded. Its ears point straight up, giving the creature an attentive, intelligent look. Cooshees are long-lived creatures, commonly reaching 100 years of age.


    An elven hound is a very effective fighting machine. It has a bone-crunching bite, capable of dropping an orc warrior. Elves say one elven hound is worth five orcs; that's an exaggeration, to be sure, but an elven hound is a ferocious combatant nevertheless, especially when attacking prey distracted by a hail of elven arrows.

    Resist Enchantment (Ex): Like their elf masters, elven hounds have a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against enchantment spells or effects.

    Sprint (Ex): Although an elven hound can go head to head with many creatures, its strength lies in the chase. Once per hour, an elven hound can move five times its normal speed (250 feet) when it makes a charge.

    Skills: Elven hounds have a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Hide, Jump, and Swim checks, and a +2 racial bonus on Listen and Spot checks. *Elven hounds have a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.


    Bow, Elvencraft: One of the biggest problems facing any archer is deciding what to do when a foe gets within melee reach. Does one stand fast and take the consequences (which can prove painful if not deadly), fall back (not always practical), or drop the bow and draw a melee weapon (inconvenient at best). Elf bowyers have made the choice somewhat less difficult by crafting bows that can stand up to melee combat. Thanks to elven ingenuity, these weapons work as well as melee weapons as they do as ranged weapons.
    An elvencraft bow is thicker and heavier than a normal bow. An elvencraft shortbow functions as a club when wielded as a melee weapon. An elvencraft longbow functions as a quarterstaff when wielded as a melee weapon. The wielder incurs no penalty on attack roll when using an elvencraft bow as a melee weapon.
    A character wielding an elvencraft bow can freely interchange melee and ranged attacks during the same round. When wielding an elvencraft bow, the user threatens the squares around him no matter how he last used the weapon.
    Magical enhancements to an elvencraft bow only affects its use as a bow. Enhancements to the melee capabilites of the weapon must be added seperately.
    An elvencraft bow costs 300 gp more than a normal bow.

    Hunter's Mercy
    Level: Ranger 1
    Components: S
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round

    This transmutation makes a bow strike true. Your first hit with a bow (not including crossbows) in the next round is automatically a critical hit. If you don't hit in the round following the casting of this spell, the effect is wasted.

    Nira Cydatell

    Nira Cytadell stands at about 5’7”, has brown skin with high almost elven like check
    bones and has rich honey colored oval eyes. Her long dark hair runs down to the middle of
    back, has a rich brown hue to it and is complimented with vibrant sandy streaks of blond
    running randomly though out it. Her shirt and trousers are simple and earth toned matched
    with a light dark green cloak to help protect her from the elements. She caries a small
    light satchel fitted comfortably over of her shoulder and under her cloak with her Savior’s
    Holy symbol tied loosely around her neck in a silk chain. The only noticeable means of
    protecting herself is a hand carved master worked bow that is either carried across her
    back or in her hand and a small beautifully carved dagger that is worn on her left hip.

    Greenbound Summoning Template
    Greenbound Creature
    In the crumbling Siluvanedenn ruins of Telardon, powerful and ancient magical energies seep
    from an unknown number of buried arcane treasures. These energies transform hapless creatures
    near by into plantlike beings of great strength. A greenbound creature looks much like it
    did before transformation, although certain changes are apparent. The creature's flesh has
    been replaced by pulpy wood and thickly corded creepers, and tiny branches stick out from
    its torso, arms, and legs. Any feathers, hair, or fur is once had have been replaced by some
    combination of green vines, moss, and leaves. Greenbound Creatures speak any languages they
    knew before transformation, although their voices are now deep and gravelly.

    "Greenbound Creature" is an acquired template that can be added to any animal, fey, giant,
    humanoid, monstrous humanoid, or vermin (hereafter referred to as the base creature). A
    greenbound creature uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities expect as
    noted here:

    Size and Type: The creatures type changes to plant with the appropriate augmented subtype.
    Do not recalculate base attack bonus, base saves, or skill points. Size is unchanged.
    Hit Dice: change all current Hit Dice to d8's.
    Armor Class: A greenbound creature's natural armor bonus improves by 6 over that of the base
    Attack: A greenbound creature retains all the attacks of the base creature and also gains a
    slam attack if it didn't have one. If the base creature can use weapons, the greenbound
    creature retains this ability. A greenbound creature fighting without weapons uses either
    its slam attack or its primary natural weapon (if it has any). A greenbound creature armed
    with a weapon uses either its slam attack or a weapon, as it desires.
    Full Attack: A greenbound creature has a slam attack. If the base creature does not have this
    attack form, use the appropriate damage value from the table below according to the
    greenbound creature's size. A creature that has other kinds of natural weapons retains
    its old damage or uses the appropriate, value from the table below.

    Size______________Base Damage

    Special Attacks: A greenbound creature retains all the special attacks of the base creature
    and gains those described below:
    Spell-Like Abilities: At will--entangle, pass without trace, speak with plants; 1/day--wall
    of thorns. Caster level equals greenbound creature's character level; save DC 10 + spell
    level + greenbound creature's Charisma modifier.
    Special Qualities: A greenbound creature retains all the special qualities of the base
    creature and gains those descripted below:
    Damage Reduction (Ex): A greenbound creature has damage reduction 10/magic and slashing. A
    greenbound creature's natural weapons are treated as magical weapon for the purpose of
    overcoming damage reduction.
    Fast Healing (Ex): A greenbound creature heals 3 points of damage each round so long as it
    has at least 1 hit point. If reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, It is slain.
    Grapple Bonus (Ex): The thorny hooks on a greenbound creature's hand and feats grant it a +4
    bonus on grapple checks.
    Resistance to Cold and Electicity (Ex): A greenbound creature gains resistance 10 to cold
    and electricity.
    Tremorsense (Ex): Greenbound creatures can automatically sense the location of anything
    within 60 feet that is in contact with the ground.
    Abilities: Increase from the Base creature as following: Str +6, Dex +2, Con +4, Cha +4.
    Skills: *A greenbound creature gains a +16 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks
    made in forested areas.
    Environment: Any forests.
    Organizitation: Same as the base creature.
    Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +2.
    Treasure: Standard.

    Chik is a handsome fellow, with the well shaped face of a young man, framed in slightly wavy black hair that hangs down around his ears. Despite his good looks, he gives off a kind of menacing air that usually makes people somewhat uncomfortable around him. Chik wears a well made breastplate for protection, and the dagger worn at his hip is exposed for all to see.

    For anyone who has spent some time with Chik, it’s easy to tell that he is a man with the best of intentions, but who often looses his temper, resulting in fits of rage that often get him in trouble. His friendship is loyal, but hard to earn. Chik doesn’t talk about his past much, but given his emotional problems and the constant battle he seems to be fighting with some inner demon, it’s easy to see that there are some skeletons in the closet.

    Chick was abandoned by his father at a young age, and he grew up in an orphanage in Immersea until he was almost nine years old. Being a poor kid with lots of free time in a city of rich nobles, it didn’t take Chik long to develop into a mischievous child who often got into trouble for “acquiring” things that didn’t belong to him. Even though his life took the same form as many of the kids around him, Chik always felt a bit different. Most of the lessons they were taught buy the house-wives seemed to make sense to the other children, while Chik really had to struggle with things to make them make sense. For instance, everyone else seemed to understand that stealing was wrong, and while Chik had that intuition (in a very weak sense), he also had something inside him that told him there was no problem with doing things like that.

    If his other mischief wasn’t enough, Chik got into many fights during his younger years, mostly as a result of people picking on his name. Chik hated the name, but he couldn’t let it go for some reason and always refused to use nicknames. After all, it was the only connection he had to his past. One time when he was being harassed by another child who quickly ran to hide by locking himself behind the cellar door, Chik discovered something else about himself – he was able to wield some kind of magic. Not knowing what he was doing, he let the anger within him explode outward and actually destroyed the door in a flash of purple fire, leaving the child behind it scared, and the mistress of the orphanage too worried to keep such a liability around.

    And so it was that Chik, now only 12 years old, was abandoned to the world once again-only this time he didn’t mind. He spent a good deal of time traveling around Cormyr, grappling with the things he had been taught as a child and his innate nature that led him to do things that were often objectionable. After traveling for eight years and still carrying on this inner struggle, Chik is both closer to the truth and further away from it. He has accepted the rightness and wrongness of certain kinds of actions, and tries his best to lead a moral life, but he also finds joy in the chaos of life that often accompanies an absence of such morals.

    Chik is on his way to Eveningstar right now, hearing that there are ruins about that might be profitable to explore. He enjoys those kinds of jobs since he has some skill at carefully finding his way through dangerously trapped places, but right now he is hoping to find some company to travel with.

    If you want a further glimpse into the mind of this troubled young man, read on…

    Why in the nine hells would someone name their kid Chik? Aw, never mind that question, I’ve been askin it ever since I was a lad and kids used to make fun of me while I played with them. I suppose my father, whoever the bastard was, must have know that with a name like this, I’d either grow up tough or die trying, and anything in between wasn’t worth the trouble of givin me a proper name. He musta had a harsh view of the world, but I suppose I can’t fault him for that.

    Still, it bothers me on nights like this when I sit outside a tavern, bruised up and a couple of silvers short after a bad rumble inside. No real reason for it, but folks just can’t help but make a few jabs when they find out what my name is. Course I can’t help but smash their face in neither…but I suppose we all have our weaknesses. Sometimes I think mine aren’t just weaknesses though, but rather something deep down inside me, pullin my gut this way and that, tryin ta make me do stuff I know better than to.

    Strange thing is, it’s that same feeling in my gut that seems to give me the strange powers I have. Ever since I can remember, since my young days living at the orphanage, I always felt like something was different about me, and I knew it was true when I finally blew a hole in the wall on accident with some funny magical power. Memories like that don’t do much for me now. Best I can hope for is to keep on surviving, and god knows it’s a game of dice in this world.

    Well I may not have found as much drink as I would have like tonight, and I sure as hell missed my chance with that serving maid, but at least I left one of those fellows with a messed up face. I suppose this town's gonna be tired of me pretty soon, so I might as well start packing. If I remember right, there's a little town called Eveningstar right up the road a ways. Ya, that’s right, I heard there might be some exploring to do around the countryside while I’m there and a small town like that won’t have any trouble in store for someone like me…

    *Fiendish Fingers

    Thodan of Tempus


    Thodan was born in the small village of Orbesh, in the Fields of Nun. The youngest son of a poor farmer, his early life consisted of hard work and little in the way of luxury. At an age of ten, Thodan’s father gave him over to the priesthood of Tempus, hoping the boy would find a better life amongst the clergy.

    Thodan entered the clergy, and became an acolyte of the cleric Theodoric, a patriarch of Tempus who presided over an ancient Chessentan citadel turned shrine within the Chondalwood forest. Thodan served Theodoric for several years, performing his duties well, strengthening into a man and learning the ways of combat. And then something happened that changed all that. Theodoric received a visitor by the name of Lord Yrkhetep, and shortly after that visit began to act strangely. When the patriarch began to practice necromancy, raising the bodies of honorable warriors from their well-deserved sleep, Thodan prayed to Tempus for guidance.

    In what could only be described as a vision, the spirit of an ancient Chessentan numeri peditatae appeared to him, and warned him to flee the shrine. Explaining to him that his life was in danger, the spirit told him to travel north, that the Lord of Battles had need of him in the lands of the purple dragon.

    Believing the vision to be a message from his god, Thodan fled the shrine and traveled north to Hlath and then caught ship to Hlondeth. From there he traveled overland to Teziir, and then caught ship across The Dragonmere to the Cormyrian capital of Suzail.

    Thodan has now been in Cormyr for nearly a decade, trying to find what need the Lord of Battles has for him within this land. Although the young cleric still receives the occasional vision or dream hinting at his purpose within these lands, he still wanders somewhat aimlessly, helping those deserving warriors he finds along his way.

    Thodan’s most recent vision implored him to seek out the “the star of twilight.” Thus, he has traveled to the idyllic farming village of Eveningstar, hoping to find some clue as to his purpose in Cormyr.

    Thodan is a gruff, dour man, who lives to fight the next battle and do glory in the name of his god, Tempus. He takes his calling very seriously. He truly believes that Tempus is communicating with him through these visions and dreams that he has had, though so far the messages have been rather cryptic. He follows Tempus’ dogma strictly, and conducts himself honorably in battle. No stranger to the thrill of battles, Thodan is not one to back down from a fight, and is well neigh fearless in the face of danger.

    Thodan enjoys good food and strong drink, and tales and songs of combat and glory. While he works well with a group, he has been spent most of his recent past as something of a lone wolf. Thus, he is used to doing things for himself. While generally gruff and terse, he can be pleasant enough when one takes the time to get to know him. His lust for battle and adventure is impressive, and he can be very strong in his views.

    At 6’ 1” in height and 185 lbs, with a muscular build, Thodan looks the part of a veteran warrior rather than a priest. His hair is shoulder length, a tangled mess of greasy brown locks, and his face is covered with permanent stubble. His face has the rugged and weathered look of someone who spends most of their time in the sun and wind. Thodan’s eyes are a vibrant cobalt blue in color, and give him a presence that his otherwise average looks could not normally do.

    Thodan dresses in well-worn, comfortable clothing. Leathers and wools make up the bulk of what he wears, in subdued shades of brown, grey and green. Although his armor and weapons show the signs of heavy use, anyone familiar with warcraft would note that they are extremely well cared for.

    As far as future direction for Thodan, I'm thinking of going for Divine Disciple from the FRCS. I had considered War Priest, but since it looks like I am the only cleric in the party, I don't think I will want to sacrifice any caster levels. I will stay with straight cleric at least through Level 8.

    Appearance, Personality, Background

    Appearance: Glandred is well muscled with bronze, almost red skin. Her hair is worn long and, like the downy growth upon her cheeks, is a fiery orange in colour. Her eyes are dark, almost black with pale orange pupils. She favours dark colours, particularly mauves, purples, reds, blues and deep oranges and yellows. She carries herself with a swaggering confidence gained through the knowledge that she seems to finally be in control of her own destiny.

    Personality: Glandred is a little confused. There seems to be large chunks of her memory that are missing. She doesn't have any idea what happened previous to the last year and she acts accordingly. She is a little paranoid, seeing a threat behind every shadow, she is cautious around strangers though always ready to take matters into her own hands. She is impatient and hates standing in ques or large crowds. If she trusts someone she trusts them implicitly, and can be easily led by such individuals.

    Background: Glandred literally translates as Forgotten or Lost Maiden (RoS 25). Glandred has no idea as to her past. She woke up just over a year ago high in the Storm Horns battered and bruised. She wandered for a couple of days before, half dead, she stumbled into Eagle Peak. She only had the possessions she wore and no money and so was forced to work for the human smith Belden for a year and a day in return for lodgings, a stipend and a little extra equipment once the tenure was over.

    Glandred proved to be a great asset to Belden and secretly he squirreled away a portion of the money he made from her wares. After the term of the contract was up Belden presented Glandred with a warhammer and her share of the takings from the year. Glandred, although moved to tears by the friendship of Belden, had resolved to depart as soon as she could so she could try and solve the mystery of her past.

    Glandred said her goodbyes to Belden not more than 3 weeks ago and has slowly made her way out of the Storm Horns and through Cormyr since. She has been in Eveningstar for only a week and is starting to run low on funds. She is reluctant to get a job at another smithy so soon after leaving her last job and so is looking for a more direct means to earn some money, and a chance to practice her martial skills.

    Note: She recalls her surname but not the signifigance of its meaning.

    Vardrin uses evil to fight evil; in this case, the power of the Uttercold fiends to fight other scourges of evil. This of course comes at a price, and he must fight his urges in order to make a positive mark in the world.


    Vardrin Theese was once a young up-and-comer in the Cormyr War Wizards. Born in Arabel, he felt a sense of duty to his kingdom after all the previous troubles that Cormyr had weathered. In his training, he was among an elite cadre of specially trained evokers; these special wizards were trained in the expert manipulation of energy. Vardrin's arcane thesis and focus was on the use of cold energies, a sometimes under-appreciated element among his peers.

    After graduating from his training, Vardrin requested to be stationed in Arabel, close to home. There we worked for several years, furthering his extra-planar and energy-based studies and protection Cormyr's citizens. That was all to change in 1371 DR, and the invasion lead by the "Devil Dragon."

    Vardrin Theese stayed for the defense of the city, letting others escape via magic to Suzail. He was to retreat later, but he was captured by orcs that he swore bore the mark of fiends. They tortured him---destroyed his hands, cut out his tongue, did worse things---for days. It was only through the efforts of a rearguard force of Purple Knights that he was eventually rescued. But, by then, Vardrin had changed. His physical wounds could be healed, but not his mental ones.

    Vardrin swore revenge, and joined Myrmeen Lhal's quest for vengeance to reclaim Arabel. He sought more power, the arcane power to defeat the fiendish orcs. He withrew into himself, began exploring dark lore normally forbidden to the War Wizards. This is when he discovered the Lords of the Uttercold, and saw a way to power.

    Vardrin's arcane might grew; his arcane cold could not be stopped. He was present when Arabel was reclaimed, but it was soon after that his superiors found his taboo studies and expelled him from the War Wizards. Disgraced, and still not satisfied with his revenge (many orcs, probably the fiendish-allied ones that tortured him, escaped), Vardrin began wandering, seeking dark places, gaining more power, but at the cost of his goodness.

    Vardrin does not recall exactly when he found and committed to the Ritual of Bonding. He believed the ritual would grant him even more control over the uttercold, allowing him more assured victory over his enemies. He was more than convinced that the ends justified the means, and thought he would firmly be in control.

    He was wrong.

    Vardrin lost himself for a while. When he controlled himself once more, he recalled only partly the things he had done. He was sickened, ashamed, lost. But it was too late---the ritual was complete, and it was permanent.

    Vardrin has spent the time since regaining himself wandering Cormyr, trying to fight off evil, right wrongs, and make up for his past. Revenge still smolders---revenge against the ones who tortured him, revenge against the ones that fooled him with the ritual---but he keeps it low, knowing that it can consume him. He seeks redemption for himself, but only he will know when he has reached it.


    Vardrin is outgoing, and prefers the company of others. He was trained to work in groups, and feels at home there. However, ever since the Fall of Arabel, there has been a more secretive and angry side as well. He occasionally has dark mood swings, and can be very aggressive in doing "what needs to be done" when fighting evil. He talks little about his past, however, preferring to focus on the future.

    Vardrin sees his path as using the tools of evil against evil. Thus, he is interested in obscure lore, especially outer planar lore. He will take up the banner for causes against tyranny and evil, especially if magical or planar interference is suspected. He is a stalwart friend and implacable foe.


    Vardrin is a man approaching middle age (30) and there are marks of a hard life in his green eyes and the white interlacing his red hair and goatee. His hands are calloused and appear to have been severely broken at some time. Though dressed as a common traveller, he carries a weapon by his side and appears to have some familiarity with it. At first glance, nothing about Vardrin speaks to his arcane power or former membership in the War Wizards, but on closer look, there is this otherness---his very pale skin, a coldness to the eye---that sets him apart.

    Height: 4'3"
    Weight: 180lb
    Eyes: brown
    Hair: brown
    Skin: deep tan
    Appearance: Nothing really stands out to distinguish Dowkan from many other dwarves. The deep tanned skin framed by his dark brown hair and beard and brown eyes are typical of many of his race. His equipment marks him as a warrior, particularly the finely crafted waraxe that rests across his back. The plain grey tunic is covered by the spiked full plate armor and matching breeches ending in a pair of sturdy well-crafted boots. He walks with a slight limp, favoring the right leg for those observant enough to notice such detail.

    Background: Dowkan spent much of his adolescence exploring his homeland and some of the deeper cave systems. Though, being slightly short of temper and not overly popular at the best of times, much of this was undertaken when he accompanied clan patrols. As his ability and confidence grew, he gradually accompanied some of the longer range reconaissance patrols of his homeland. He took a particular liking to the waraxe during this time, admiring its style and the damage it could deal out in close-quarters when wielded in trained hands.

    One unfortunate event turned his life upside down. Dowkan convinced a small group of friends, including a cousin, to join him exploring a distant cave system. To reach it required some overland travel. A day out from the Clan, the group was ambushed by some Hobgoblin slavers. Outnumbered and with no prospect of survival, Dowkan fought fiendishly, but fell helping defend his friends. After two days, he woke to find most of the others gone, and another dead dwarf.

    On return to the Clan, he was held to blame for leading the others astray. The recriminations from even his own family and his own guilt grew too strong and he chose to leave his home rather than live as an outsider amongst his own people. In his own mind he had some ridiculous notion of freeing those friends who may have been captured and exacting a bloody revenge on the raiders. But without any real knowledge of what he was seeking, Dowkan left some days later without a word.

    In all, his travels took him nearly 50 miles from the Spine of the World. His encounters along the way were generally neither overly exciting nor dangerous. However, one encounter with two bandits near the Hill of Vengor did allow him to vent some frustration at his plight and resulted in a gashed calf on his right leg that has left him with a slight limp, but in much better shape than the bandits.

    Dowkan reached Silverymoon, and has spent some time as an axe-for-hire in the service of the Temple of Tyr. Dowkan took leave of service from Tyr when in Eveningstar. After drinking most of his liquid wealth, he has once again taken up paid service, though this time to work for the Cormyrian Crown.
